Let’s get into the recipe.
EASY CHICKEN FAJITAS FOR CAMPING
Makes: 6 fajitas
Prep Time at Home: 5 minutes
Prep Time at Camp: 20 minutes
1 lb boneless chicken breast
1 yellow onion
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 jalapeño (optional)
2 TBS ghee or cooking oil
1 packet of Simply Organic Fajita Simmer Sauce
6 flour tortillas
1 lime (optional)
Cook the Chicken:
I absolutely love grilled chicken in this recipe. To make things really easy at camp, you can grill chicken at home and just pack it in the cooler.
If cooking it at camp, set the grill over some coals from the fire, and grill the chicken on each side until fully cooked and the internal temperature reaches 165°F. This usually takes about 10 minutes on each side. Cook time will vary depending on the coals and size of chicken breasts.
Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the grill and let is rest for a few minutes before you slice it. In the meantime, get the veggies ready.
Cook the Veggies:
Slice the peppers, onion, and jalapeño (if using) into thin strips. To make things easier, chop veggies at home and store in the cooler in an airtight container.
Heat a cast iron pan on a camp stove over medium heat.
Add the oil and the sliced veggies. Saute for about 6 minutes until the veggies have slightly softened, mixing occasionally.
Once the chicken is cooked, slice it into thin strips.
Add the chicken to the pan with the veggies. Add in the simmer sauce.
Mix well until all the chicken and veggies are coated. Simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Heat tortillas on the grill for about 30 seconds each side.
Scoop some of the chicken and peppers onto the tortilla.
Serve immediately with a fresh squeeze of lime!
Serving size depends on how hungry you and your fellow campers are! This recipe makes about 6 fajitas, so you might need to scale it up depending on your group size. I would plan for at least 2 fajitas per adult.
You can easily make this entire recipe without a campfire. Either cook the chicken beforehand at home, or cook it before the veggies in your cast iron pan. Once the chicken is cooked, set it aside and continue to cook the veggies according to the instructions below. For the tortillas, you don’t need to grill them, so if you don’t have a grill/campfire, just skip that step.
This camp dinner is great with some grilled corn, as pictured. Just put the unhusked corn directly over the coals, and cook for about 10-15 minutes, rotating frequently.
